We are pleased to announce that the annual Graduate Theological Foundation-sponsored Vincent Strudwick Lecture at Kellogg College, University of Oxford, will welcome The Rt. Revd Dr. Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, as the 2015 guest lecturer. Dr. Williams will speak on the topic of “Religion and Belief in Public Life: proposed new legislation in a time of cultural change.” This year’s lecture will take place on Monday, October 26 on the campus of Kellogg College, one of the 37 constituent colleges of the University of Oxford.
Established in 2011 in honor of The Revd Canon Dr. Vincent Strudwick of Oxford and the GTF, this annual lecture series serves to further the discussion of the topic of religion and public life, a long-standing interest of Canon Strudwick. He is an Honorary Fellow of Kellogg College, Emeritus Canon of Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford (UK), and has also served for many years as Fellow and Bishop John Tinsley Professor of Anglican Theology at the GTF. The Vincent Strudwick Lecture is attended annually by numerous invited guests, including religious leaders, scholars, and faculty and staff of the University of Oxford. Two members of the Graduate Theological Foundation’s staff will be in attendance at the lecture this year. More information, along with photos, will be included in the November newsletter.
